Issues booting up

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Lately I have been having issues with my pc while booting up. While in the process of booting my video card's fans go really fast and then my screen goes black. I can still hear all my other fans and hdd running. What do you think could be the problem? Odd thing sometimes my computer will start up if I leave it alone for awhile and once it does it runs fine.

Once I get my computer working I can run stress tests and what not. It doesn't crash during those.

It may be a drivers conflict or an overclock issue...try to use a different video card. Also try a reinstall of windows

Wish I had a different card to try..and already reinstalled windows yesterday and ran everything on stock didn't seem to help. I did try onboard though which seemed to work perfect don't know if that would be any help knowing that.

Maybe your power? Check all the plugs in your pc. Maybe a plug is loose.

That's pretty much the first thing I did. Course everything was plugged in all the way. I was thinking maybe a cord was loose but nothing was.

Hmmm it would seem there is a piece of hardware even failing or a driver conflict?
But if you have reinstalled Windows (which in my humble opinion wouldn't be my first port of call but it is only my opinion!) and you are still getting the problem I would say it maybe you Motherboard or BIOS...
You could buy another BIOS chip if you cannot flash the original one and if that solves it job done - if it hasn't it is most likely your board.
Can I ask, how old is the mobo?

Edit - Sorry just in my experience fans spinning, no signal or problems like that have to led, finnally to the motherboard failing...

Like a year and 8 months and I just flashed my bios back to an older version one that worked perfect before and still the problem happens.

Could well be the mobo, sorry man I am an ASUS man myself - but I guess GigaByte are reasonably the same (thats no slander I do like GigaByte!) and since the flashing of the bios hasn't worked might worth checking by installing other components in, like another Graphics Card(s) or other memory, if it still happens then it is most likely the mobo...

But just to rule out anything else take all opinions and make a call..

Can I also ask what bleeps come from the POST Bleep, if any when this happens?
